How cute is this little Emma book!? We just received Emma’s custom board book from Pint Size Productions in the mail and she is loving it!
IT TAUGHT ADDIE FAMILY MEMBERS’ NAMES
We first found out about Pint Size when Addie was given one of these by one of her grandmas. It was perfect because we were living far from family, and it had everyone’s pictures in it. Even though we lived 800 miles from the closest family member (and 1500 miles away from the rest), she learned the names of everyone who loves her the most!
You can’t tell from the above picture, but Addie’s book is well loved. It’s been across the country and back. Babies have attempted to eat it, and toddlers have attempted to destroy it. It has withstood the true test of durability! Way to go, Pint Size!
Recently Emma started wanting to read Addie’s book – she loved seeing all the pictures of family. She’d bring it to Ben or me and say, “reeeeee!? reeee!?” (read)
But every page said, “so-and-so loves Addie…”
We would read it aloud and fill in “so loves Addie… and Emma…” #secondchildproblems
Anyway, I finally got around to making Emma her own book and the lovely people at Pint Size said they would give one of you one too! [Update: the giveaway has expired, but the books are still awesome!]
The girls were pretty excited when Emma’s book came in the mail!
They would both squeal the name of the person they saw as they turned each page!
Me: “Girls, do you like those books? Smile for the picture!”
And this is the face I got. Just keepin’ it real, folks.
SEVERAL DESIGN OPTIONS
We went ahead and copied the same format of the book Addie already had – we put a picture on each page of Emma with a family member and wrote “Grammy loves Emma… Mommy loves Emma…”
But you can do anything you want. There are several different book designs. You can start from scratch…
or use one of their predesigned templates.
Once you choose your book design, you just create an account (so they can save the book you’re making), drag and drop your pictures, and it’s done! It took me 15 minutes start to finish after I already had my pictures chosen. (Here is how I organize all my pictures so that projects like this are quick.)
Plus, the people at Pint Size are very quick to respond and easy to work with, so if you did have a question while you were making it, you could shoot them an email and get some help.
I love this idea for a infant or toddler birthday gift, or for their own version of a baby book. My kids love theirs.
Happy book-making, mommas!
